    taboo / a taboo

    In this company, dating a coworker is considered (a) taboo.

    I wonder if both 'taboo' and 'a taboo' are used and there are any differences between the two.
    I'd appreciate any of your replies.

    Re: taboo / a taboo

    They have the same meaning. The use with "a" has "taboo" as a noun. The other use has "taboo" as an adjective.
